Bob, You can't one up yourself. You have a beatiful coach, the '08's are no better just gotta more regulated engine (Less power/more fuel). April Fool's or not, I ain't buying it, and I'm sure you aren't either.

Bob, Maybe saying that the LADB just got towed due to a cooling fan issue would have really got them going and sacked all of us for a "Can't Be" April Fool.

I agree with ecker. I am only familiar with Cummins 2007 engine info, and they have the same or more power.

Those are the spec's for heavy duty trucks. The ISX for motorhome use is still 600 HP. Also all the info on their website is for engine prior to '07 engine completion. The ISX actually had room to increase it to 625 HP.
All the hype that the new engines are the same or better than before is just that, hype. They made the calculation prior to applying the powering of the cooling, etc. While the HP might look good (as in the ISL 425) I wouldn't count on the actual net power, that is what's left to get to the wheels.

Time will tell.
